However going by the same artist name in different languages was often confusing, so I decided to have separate artist names for different languages. I Am Justice was the alternative for our artists’ name back when we were still a band. It’s also a reference to the same anime, and it sounds just as good as the other name, if not better,” explains the band.

I love music. But there isn’t much out there for me. See, I’m asexual. So that eliminates most songs. I am fine listening to them, but they don’t really speak to me. Second, I’m really into mental health. That has not been explored in music that much beyond the classic angsty and vague songs. They also tend to talk about the problem, not the solution. At some point I decided I wanted to change that. Continue reading Unpacking Emotions; Personal Feature of Violeta Zamorano-Scott
